The podiatrist, Hillary Brenner, says that “The heel of the shoes becomes higher and higher” and we like to call them as the shoes kill the people. Ms. Brenner, the spokeswoman for the America medical association for the foot trouble, informed that the super high-heeled shoes may cause a lot of diseases from the sprain of the ankle till to the chronic pain. Let’s consider carefully about the height, designs as well as the drawbacks of the shoes nowadays. From that, you can choose suitable footwear for your walking and standing.
1. The heel of the foot has something which is convex
Both the shoes with the super high heel and the medium high heel usually can cause the inflammation, the painful tumor appearing the heel of the foot. The material of the shoes is too hard so this makes the bones get out of the shape. And some women call this the convex ball. This pressure leads to the inflation, blisters, bursitis, cholecystitis translation, or even the pain in Achilles tendon.
Solution: purchasing the better shoes, applying a cold compress or the orthopedic treatment or using the paddle inserts can reduce the pain. This ball exists forever.
2. The weird posture of the foot
The super high heel shoes will stuff the center on the ball of the foot. In this important joint, the bones of the foot border with the sesame bones, and the bones of the humans’ toes. If this force is too strong, the bones or the nerves surrounding them will be inflamed. If this condition is continuous frequently and for a long time, the telangiectasias evidence will be caused.
Solution: wearing the low-heeled shoes. When you turn into using the low-heeled shoes, you can be prevented from the problems with the foot bones. The shorter shoes you wear, the most comfortable you will feel. Ms. Brenner advises that you should choose the height of the heel is no longer than 2 inch- and even you should not wear them too much.
3. The ankle’s sprain
All of the high heel shoes can increase the risk of the sprain of your ankle. This will make the ligament become stretcher. If you suffer from the worst trouble, the ligaments can be torn.
Solution: when you have this trouble, you should fix this area or you need to have the physical therapy to treat it. The sprain or the crack can lead to chronic osteoarthritis.
4. The shoes with the pointy toes
Although all of the high heel shoes can cause the troubles, the ones with the pointy toes are especially dangerous. Ms. Brenner said to WebMD that “The weight of your body focus on this area so when walking, you feel like walking on the stilts. And the result is you find it very easy to fall and suffer the sprain.
Solution: The low and large heel shoes. This kind of shoes has the large surface so it can maintain your body in balance. This design will help you stand much more stable than using the pointy-heeled shoes. Although this shoes can put much pressure on the ball of the foot, the risk of falling because of standing will be limited.
5. The ballet shoes
Brenner compared these pretty shoes when walking on the cardboards or the carton; she said to the WebMD that these ones cannot lift up the arch. This problem makes your foot not operate in the best cases and can cause troubles for your knees, hip as well as your back. If your arch is not lifted well, the disease related from your foot like the plantar fasciitis will appear.
Solution: Insert the orthopedic things. If you like the design of the ballet shoes, the orthopedic inserts purchased at the stores may support you for the light problem. They also make your heel feel much more comfortable. These inserts can ease all of the pains in your foot and the trouble of your foot as well. The podiatrists advise you to use them in order to lift up your arch and reduce the pressure on some sensitive areas. These orthopedic tools may be very expensive but sometimes they are insured well.
6. The flip-flops
The flip-flops usually do not protect your foot very well. The risk of getting splinters or having the injuries in your foot is higher than any cases because your foot is so exposed. The people suffering from diabetes should not wear the flip-flops because the small cuts also can cause the dangerous trouble. In addition, many kinds of the flip-flops are not typical for lifting your arch. Like the ballet shoes, the flip-flops can make the plantar fasciitis become worse and lead to many problems about your knees, hip or your back.
Solution: the people suffering from diabetes should not wear the flip-flops
7. The plantar fasciitis
The band of tissue called the plantar fascia runs along the sole of your foot. This band will help your foot when walking- and can operate in the best case when your arch is in the suitable condition. On the occasion of walking in the barefoot, or wearing the flimsy and easily torn shoes, your arch can not be lifted up. That is why the plantar fascia can be overstretched, torn or get inflamed. This common disease can make you heel hurt heavily, and if you relax, this problem will be over for a short time.
Solution: wearing sandals. The sandals will be fit with your foot, as well as with the sporty design, and some kinds of the shoes like the ice skates (the high and curved sole) are used for practicing walking much. The American Fitness Association said that there is no proof for that, but maybe they have some another benefit. The thick sole will protect your foot from the land or being hurt by the glass. Ms. Brenner pointed out that “these shoes really lift up your arch well”. The foot clinic associations in the United States officially allow using some kind of these shoes.
